Howdy Bitches, I’m back. What’d I miss?
We’re all settled into the new place. We made the cutoff and moved in on New Year’s Eve. There are still an assload of unpacked boxes but I’d say we’re pretty much settled. I will post before and after pictures of all the crazy work we did soon.
The new neighborhood puts us in the Land of Homeowner’s Associations, where our previous neighborhood was not. It took a week to get our first reprimanding letter. So we can’t park our pickup truck outside overnight and we had thirty days to remedy the situation. These people don’t fuck around and will start charging you for violations and even put a lien on your house if you don’t pay. We scrambled to clear out a spot in the garage and look forward to future letters from our new homeowner’s association.
We’re only ten minutes from the beach and have gone a few times since the move. It’s awesome to be able to stop over without an hour drive home. Sand in the asscrack is much more tolerable when you know there is a hot shower ten minutes away.
My genius kid was ecstatic to listen to the sound of the ocean in a seashell he found last weekend. He was standing NEXT TO the ocean so the soundtrack was playing in surround sound but I didn’t have the heart to tell him.
I recently recovered from a serious injury that plagued me for days. It involved a large bowl of Peanut Butter Captain Crunch. Have you ever tried that shit? It’s sharp, sharp cereal. It scraped the roof of my mouth so bad that I could barely eat for two days after. On the third day, I poured myself another bowl. The Captain and I are in an abusive relationship and I just can’t stop myself from going back.
We sabotaged Elliot’s potty training progress with the move but she’s stepped it up again in the past week. I secretly don’t want to have a potty trained daughter because eww, have you seen public restrooms? She had an accident today at school and came home wearing someone else’s underwear. I know they’re two but still, gag me with a spoon.
Still no hits on the old house, it just sits empty. Our realtor is having an open house this weekend so if you know anyone looking, send them by.
I have to confess my love for Press and Seal. Have you tried it? It’s awesome. I used to be all, “what’s that weird shit, Saran Wrap is the only way to go” but now I’m team Press and Seal and Saran Wrap can go screw.
Our HP Laserjet printer has been on the fritz for a few months and is enough to piss me off. Which isn’t hard to do but still. Jamie read a thread online that said to bake the computer chip for ten minutes at 350 and it fucking worked. I’m still scratching my head thinking about the dumbass who tried that for the first time and realized they were onto something.
